To give you a little background into my relationship with Rocky Horror, I can recall watching it when I may have been about 8 years old and listening to the soundtrack on tape (yes, I'm of that generation), then when I was 13 or so watching this cult classic and being mortified that my parents let me watch it so young, as I had worked out what it was about. However it doesn't stop there... my mum went along to see Rocky Horror at the theater several times in her 20's and the very same fluffy jacket she wore then was the one in our dress-up box. Now several years on I too have been to see it being preformed on stage and well... I loved it! It was everything I expected and more.
If you're not familar with the story line it all starts on one dark and stormy night (as all good stories do), where squeaky clean sweethearts Brad and Janet embark on an adventure they'll never forget, stumbling upon the flamboyant Frank N Furter (Craig McLachlan), the ripped Rocky, a mysterious Riff Raff, the vivacious Magenta and the ultimate show stopping toe tapping gal, Columbia.
Whether you're a fan from way back like myself or you've never seen the show before, get along to the Melbourne Comedy Theatre and experience what this cult classic is all about. Though be prepared to be swept into a time warp where madness, fun and frivolity take control... oh and pleasure!
Rocky Horror Show plays at Melbourne Comedy Theatre through till 13 July 2014 and tickets are available at www.marrinergroup.com.au.
